Dr. Kathleen Scaler Scott brings her years of clinical experience and her research in the area of cluttering and atypical disfluencies to bear in Fluency Plus designing it to act as both a textbook for students and a practical guide for the clinician. The comprehensive review of current definitions of fluency disorders and the evidence base for treatments will be of great help to students, while clinicians will appreciate the specific guidelines, strategies, and activities for managing fluency in concomitant disorders.
After reviewing general principles and covering how executive functions relate to the management of these multiple concerns, the text addresses seven concomitant disorder areas the speech-language pathologist may encounter in practice. For each disorder category, an overview of potential fluency problems is provided, myths regarding treatment of fluency disorders in each population are debunked, and effective treatment activities are recommended.
Some Concomitant Disorders Covered:Intellectual DisabilitySpeech Sound Disorders (apraxia, phonological, articulation disorders)Learning Disabilities, Auditory Processing and Language DisordersAttention Deficit DisordersAutism Spectrum DisorderSelective Mutism
Fluency Plus: Managing Fluency Disorders in Individuals with Multiple Diagnoses helps close an education and training gap for students and clinicians alike by increasing their confidence, knowledge, and skills when dealing with fluency disorders and complex combinations of concomitant disorders.
